Tesla only for the rich and famous? Nah - not anymore. Model 3 will be offered for...drumroll please...$35K! And that's BEFORE incentives! See ya vehicle emissions!
Little known fact - it was always a goal of Teslas to "drive the electric car revolution" (pun intended) which meant offering a mid-priced car to the mass market. They started with the high end luxury vehicle in order to perfect the technology for all us middle of the road peeps to benefit from in 2017. They better get the car here quick though! Incentives fall off in 2018!
